Holiday Challenge

From here until Christmas I’m going to post at least one Christmas song a day.  More than likely it won’t be the only thing I post, but sharing my love of music is one of the ways I enjoy the holiday…so you’re stuck with it!  LOL!

This world is filled with so much potential…really, it is! Unfortunately, we have proved…practically since our inception, that the one thing that we’re most good at is coming up with the most creative and painful ways to destroy each other…both body and spirit. The last few weeks have been proof of that…all over the world.

No, I’m not going to weigh in on the gun control battle, though I do have my own opinion. I will say this…we don’t need guns to kill each other. Proof? China…those kids were killed by a knife.  McVeigh…he learned how to make a bomb online…and took out hundreds. Where there is a will, there is a way. Sad, but true fact…

So if we can be so quick to kill, it stands to reason that we’re probably pretty good at healing, too…but it’s gonna take all of us. One act of kindness at a time. I truly believe every act of selflessness we do is one more step to battling apathy and hate. So my challenge for you? Look around you…find someone who could use an act of kindness…and if it’s within your power, make it happen. The bigger part of that challenge? Do it anonymously! Then share it with us….  See if you can’t be someone’s Christmas miracle.

With that, I leave you with this song… Reminding us…that even in the darkest times, hope can be found….Love Johnny Cash’s narrative in this song.

      Nope. Not at all… But it’s a start… Maybe people will get addicted to that feel good feeling of seeing how a couple little things can change a life…and start a chain reaction of kindness. 🙂

    We haven’t done this yet but we are going to provide Christmas dinner for a family in our church, he lost his job and she is quite ill they are in their 60’s so not a lot of positions out there for him. WE will not let them know it is from us as we have a Santa that is just going to drop by this coming week with the box. WE also have a single mother we are doing the same for with added gifts for the children. I am very excited about doing this because it blesses them but most of all it blesses us in our hearts.

    Every day I try to do something good for someone else, even if it’s as small as letting a mother and her child cross at a crosswalk when everyone else driving is in too much of a hurry to stop for 10 seconds to let them cross. These are the important things in life that could really make a difference…even if it just puts a smile on their faces for a moment.
